Boy, Smithsonianmag really puts on the cookies.
Suspicious. I shut it down, the page, before seeing the article.

Steven Greer has a film out that talks about free energy and Tesla. Might be good to take a look at that film:

Greer?
Holy crap, you cannot possibly be Sirius.

Marconi even used Tesla's patented technology,17 patents to be precise when he transmitted that first message across the Atlantic and Marconi took all the glory.Tesla is truly the founder of most of the Technology we use today.

It was probably because he was a stoner. Marconi did indeed transmit the letter S in 1901, the same transmission Tesla claimed to have received from outer space in 1899, then John Jacob Astor IV invested $100,000 for Tesla to further develop and produce a new lighting system. Instead, Tesla used the money to fund his Colorado Springs experiments. A brilliant man agreed, but it would seem not all that reliable. But a good man. When Marconi was awarded the recognition of the radio, others asked Tesla "didn't you invent this?" To which Tesla replied something along the lines of "He is a good man, and doing good work, leave him alone"
A humble brilliant man no doubt, with faults like the rest of us but that just makes him all the more human to me.

Despite the whacky claims he was delivered here from Venus as a baby...........

But whacky claims and Tesla go tend to go hand in hand. What Edison did is unforgivable IMHO.

I of course don't now have any of my old high school books, and the present curriculum has almost nothing to say about the history of radio (according to my sons), but I am quite sure that Tesla and Marconi were given pretty equal billing when I was growing up in a French high school.  At any rate both names were equally familiar to me as doing with early radio.

bit of an epic fail there then huh.....?

   i wonder though,   was he saying that would happen in the 21st  century... or.... later?  because i think eventually will will be forced to breath clean air and eat natural foods. LOL


In the 1950s  ... we were taught in school that Marconi invented radio... PERIOD.   No mention of Tesla whatsoever!   .. of course Tesla was credited with the invention of radio.... after his death.

Regarding eugenics: I don't find this much of a prediction as most prominent political figures and inventors during this time were very much pro-eugenic minded.  As much as people don't want to believe, it is the USA minded pro-eugenics that influenced Hitler in Nazi Germany.  This seems so far fetched for those of us living in present day, but eugenics programs have been practiced into the late 1960s in many states.

Regarding Health and Diet, eliminating stimulants: he was a mormon.

Regarding robots:  I don't think he was the first one to predict computers (or programming of machinery in production line work.)

Regarding cheap energy:  I believe present day society gives little credit to the minds of those in the late 1800s.  Nothing is new, and history repeats itself.  There is no way he was the only person who had concern over the consummation of natural resources, and wishes for more efficiency/cost in energy.  How do we know he didn't already know about the history of hydro-power?  He was living in an age where hydro-power plants were being erected around him.  http://www1.eere.ene...ro_history.html


I don't discredit his mind and innovative ideas, but I believe the article was poorly written.
